dell specifically focused on this issue this past summer to south america. we're all aware of the iranian threat or their proxies' activity here in this hemisphere. whether it's the thwarted assassination attempt last year where the operatives of the iranian revolutionary guard were trying to use mexican drug cartel connections to enter the united states, to assassinate the ambassador from saudi arabia , or we're aware of hezbollah recently being revealed that hezbollah had a terrorist training camp or a training camp of some origin in nicaragua, here in this hemisphere. last week the iranian deputy foreign minister for europe and the americas visited cuba, venezuela, bolivia and uruguay. this follows the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad's frequent trips to the region. most recently iranian naval commanders have expressed their intent to extend iran's maritime presence into the atlantic ocean, closer to the coastlines of the u.s. with this piece of legislation, we seek to protect u.s. citizens from threats from iran and defend american interests and assets here in this
